Have you asked yourself; “Where do they get the electricity?” An electric car runs on batteries charged with electricity.
A hybrid car runs on gasoline and batteries charged with electricity. A hybrid has the advantage of being able to use the gasoline powered engine to move if the batteries run out of charge.
Both Hybrid and Electric Vehicles use “Regenerative Breaking” so that when you slow down or brake the motor RE-charges the battery by running backwards.
The motor transforms into a generator to fill the battery back up.
But, both vehicles also have Charge Sockets where the operators “Plug In” to recharge the batteries.
Operators use electricity that is generated by some other fuel such as Coal, Natural Gas, Nuclear, and even Wind or Solar power plants.
Wouldn’t it be nice to know that the Electric Car or Hybrid Vehicle that you are driving is charged with God’s Energy without ANY fossil fuels being used and without any emissions into the atmosphere? Thanks to the USEPA “Green Power Equivalency Calculator Methodologies” website page you have access to information.
Using an average sized Genergy, LLC power plant we will be able to replace 3,808,651 metric tons CO2/power plant with 0 “Zero” metric tons CO2/power plant
Does that sound like a fair trade?
